HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bootle and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Bootle property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the Bootle property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Bootle property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as toilet cistern.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. It is found all over the world including the US.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Professional removal of asbestos will probably be dear but absolutely must be carried out by trained experts.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fittings such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any gas fittings won't actually be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe Register firms in Bootle include Renewable Solutions UK Ltd of The Bridgewater Complex, Canal Street, Bootle, Merseyside Tel. 0845 224 7001 and J A H Heating Services of 2 Fernhill Avenue, Bootle, Merseyside Tel. 07850483378.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a stucco Victorian house in Bootle which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a specific type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Georgian homes. It may have lime in it in addition to animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Bootle surveyors can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped water culminating in the surface breaking. Other issues may include sulphate attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
